March 26, 2015. In the wake of Severe Tropical Cyclone PAM, FIJI Water has donated two container loads of bottled water to Melanesian neighbours, the Vanuatu Government.
Worth more than $70,000.00, the two containers were delivered to the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and will be shipped to Vanuatu by Pacific Direct Line, who donated their services in conjunction with Fiji Water’s sister company Neptune Pacific Line. Minister for Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Koya, acknowledged the donation from FIJI Water’s Chief Executive Officer Mr. Rokoseru Nabalarua.
Mr. Nabalarua said “FIJI Water always tries to support those in need, not only in Fiji and the Pacific Islands but around the world.”
The island nation was declared a State of Emergency by their Government post Severe Tropical Cyclone PAM. This is part of the Fijian Government’s collective effort to assist the Vanuatu Government with their relief efforts.
